OK to make "correct" generalizations

I had to chuckle at this Kurt Busiek retweeted response to politically correct scifi writer John Scalzi:

Now, while the "ALL" part of her second point is certainly debatable, I would certainly buy it if she said "A LOT." But this is beside the point. A tweet like this tweet is permissible among the Scalzis and Busieks of the [entertainment] world because it impugns a politically incorrect group -- men -- and "protects" a politically correct group -- women.

I wonder: Does anyone think Scalzi or Busiek would tweet (or retweet) something like "So again, let's say we don't pretend that terrorism isn't a issue MOSTLY about Muslims. Not ALL Muslims, but certainly too many of them"? Or, "And the point isn't "MOST Muslims are terrorists." The point is "MOST terrorists are Muslims"?

Nah. Neither do I. That subject ain't "incorrect" enough for them.

Boom! Right on the money, Hube. (Hmmm...I don't know if 'boom' was the right word, since we're talking about "workplace violence." Sorry if that was insensitive. I know certain comic book creators are incredibly sensitive.)
